Event Description


Register below to help Xstream Cleanup's newest Citizen Science Initiative to gather critical data pollution in our region.

Once Registered - Xstream will provide all your clean up supplies! 

Become a citizen scientist at this event! The Quad Cities has been selected for Phase 2 of the Mississippi River Plastic Pollution Initiative. The data gathered in the Quad Cities will be analyzed to understand the state of plastic litter in river communities in the region. The goal is to generate as rich a picture as possible of the extent and type of litter heading to the Mississippi River. 

Join this scheduled event to help reach the goals - volunteers of any experience level are welcome!
